Favorite H+ movies. If defined loosely, I would nominate S1m0ne. This was
unique in several ways: the only H+ comedy that I know of, the only time Al
Pacino played a comedy role (and he was hilarious as a desperate movie
director). The sight gags, such as the geek super-programmer with an 80s
vintage removable hard disk in a setting that was supposed to be about 2006
to 2008-ish, Pacino's attempts to destroy the image of S1m0ne that
backfired, etc. Hilarious stuff.
Last time I mentioned this here, someone posted back that they saw it and
didn't get it.
